Cat Club has arguably the best sound system of any Karaoke joint in The City. KJ Bruce Rogers--a master of sound engineering--gets the sound right every time. I've never had a problem hearing my song when Bruce is around.
So, Wednesday night, 9pm to 2am, cheap yet stiff drinks, friendly people, a large space well known for 80's nights, and a friendly staff that makes you feel very welcome. Put it all together and you've got the Cat Club.
It has been a while since my last visit to the Cat Club. Since then, some new faces with good voices and an updated song list promised to add more fun and excitement to the evening. For some reason I felt nervous. After Rachel brought me a glass of soda and bitters--love ya' Rachel--my nerves settled down and it was time to sing. Yesss! Did I mention how much I love the sound system? It's awesome! Everyone sounded great, even those people who didn't think they could sing were pleasantly surprised. It's all about what you can hear Essay!
Let me give special mention to a few people whose performances I can remember from that night. Rachel and Anneke sang Miranda Lambert's "Gunpowder and Lead"; Patrick performed a song from "La Boheme" but I can remember the exact song. He did it well; Sam sang a hybrid of Public Enemy's "Bring The Noise"; Janny and I harmonized to "Wild Horses", which is my new, favorite Karoake song.
Another successful night at the Cat Club. Good people, great music, good times. Thanks Friends. You can bet I'll be back more often. Cheers!
